Bright Bike (no light)
Bright Bike (no light)
The Bright Bike is a retroreflective vinyl wrapped bicycle. We used Scotchlight 680 vinyl. When the bicycle is in the beam of a light (like a car's headlight, or a camera's flash,) it reflects back super bright. When it is not in the light, it is just jet black. Ideally, it will aid in nighttime bicycle safety. This bicycle was stolen on January 8th 2010 at 195 Bowery NYC, a block south of the New Museum. It has a bike "BRIGHT BIKE" sticker on the downtube. The wheels are a brand new set of Open Pros, laced to White Industries ENO hubs (eccentric). Went in for a gallery opening, came out, and it was gone. This is an ICONIC bike, (there are no other bikes in NYC with the full retroreflective treatment) so if you see anyone riding it, it is stolen.
More lights, more reflective tape
More lights, more reflective tape
Three (count 'em! three!) flashing red lights on the rear of the bike, plus loads of high-vis 3M super-duper reflective tape. The flashing lights are great, since the lights each have a slightly different strobe rate, so the flashes keep going in and out of synch with each other. Should I get hit, the "I didn't see him" plea won't go very far...

MSA Safety Works 10021259 Straight Temple Safety Glasses, Clear
An estimated 2.4 million eye injuries occur annually in the U.S.--And more than 1 million of these occur at home. Up to 90% of these could be prevented through the use of protective eyewear, according to Prevent Blindness America. These unique safety glasses, from MSA Safety Works, the world leader in safety products, feature designer styling with high impact polycarbonate lenses to produce safety glasses that are both sleek in style and protective. The lens on these safety glasses is anti-fog, so it helps prevent fogging even when working in challenging environments--no more fogging when working hard or when hopping in and out of air conditioning! The lens also has a hard-coat protective coating to help reduce scratches. The ratcheted angle-adjustable temples allow the lens to be positioned up or down for optimum user comfort. The rubber-tipped straight-back temples are flexible so that they fit comfortably on the head, yet stay in place. The glasses come with a free pair of soft foam ear plugs as an added bonus. The glasses and ear plugs can be stored in the reclosable plastic clamshell for protection when not in use.
